Found in a folder, this description of the Family of Mary remains as true today as the day it was typed “old school”: on an actual typewriter, typos and all. We can live with the typos, but not without knowing the author. Do you know who wrote this?
Why would Chaminade make 23 attempts to formulate a Manual of Direction to give to his leaders? To understand, we must first consider the background of his work of predilection, the Sodality of Bordeaux.
"Chaminade was more than a moralist; he was a prophet who proclaimed courageously the victory of Christ, whose most beautiful work is the Virgin Mary. Indeed, his thought is definitely more Christological and ecclesial than Marian."
